Defiant NRA chief draws line against Washington, 'media elites': We will never surrender or submit
The Blaze
In a speech that was both bleak and defiant, National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre called on conservative activists to fight Washington and "media elites" who want to "strip our rights away." "You feel it in your heart," LaPierre said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, held just outside Washington, D.C. "You know it in your gut. Something in our country has gone wrong the core values that we believe in, the things we care about most in our lives, are changing."

Facebook cracks down on gun posts, sales
USA Today
Facebook is cracking down on gun-related posts. The social media giant is blocking minors from seeing postings of gun sales and will take down sales that don't require a background check or cross state lines. The change is a win for groups like Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which have been lobbying for more restrictive gun policies at businesses including Starbucks, Staples and Facebook.

Threat avoidance
Gun Digest
Reader Chris C. writes: "I listened to your great training on how to avoid gunfights and really like the tactic of aggressive gun presentation and sharp verbal commands, but you didn't talk much about how to avoid risky situations in the first place. Isn't that just as important?"

Answer: "You bet Chris. Here are some simple tips to help you avoid being a victim of assault or home burglary that I learned in over 27 years as a cop dealing with the aftermath."

Why are gun companies moving?
Guns & Ammo
Since the 1816 founding of Remington Arms in Ilion, N.Y., the northeastern United States has been the domestic firearm industry's home for traditional manufacturers such as Colt and Smith & Wesson. Currently, however, an unprecedented number of gun companies are expanding or considering a move to entirely different states. Why? The most obvious answer is that these companies find it difficult to do business in regions favoring an anti-gun sentiment. Connecticut and New York, both home to large, historic firearms manufacturers, enacted some of the nation’s strictest gun-control regulations last year. The governors of these states continue to foreshadow additional restrictions.

Picking the right concealed carry gun
Gun Digest
Drop into any local gun store or log into any firearms forum on the Internet and ask what the "best carry gun" is. You'll get a raft of responses, almost all of which are based on what the responders personally like. What's more, what they personally like may or may not be based on anything other than hearsay — or what their buddies like. Let's look at it a little more logically; choosing a concealed carry gun is really about reaching the right balance for you. You have to consider size, power, efficiency and capacity in your deliberations, and each variable affects the others.

Polls find strong support for national gun registry, Keystone XL pipeline
Washington Examiner
Three new polls released found growing and overwhelming support for a national gun registry that could require all gun owners to tell police what they have, including how much ammo they've hidden away. Residents of Virginia, New Jersey and New York back a gun registry by nearly two-to-one or more in the jointly released polls that also found even greater support for building the Keystone XL pipeline that would bring Canadian oil into the United States.

Brady law has done little to keep guns out of criminals' hands
Investor's Business Daily
Feb. 28 marked the 20th anniversary of the so-called Brady Law, a federal gun control in honor of James Brady, Ronald Reagan's former press secretary who was wounded in John Hinckley's assassination attempt. Since it requires background checks on all guns purchased from federally licensed firearms dealers, gun control advocates celebrated the law's purported effectiveness. The description by the Capitol newspaper The Hill was typical.
